Two-Year Program

The two-year program is designed for transfer students and MSU students who wish to earn a commission as an Army officer, but did not participate in the four-year program. Students desiring to participate in the two-year program must first gain credit for basic military science courses. Qualified veterans, USAR and ARNG personnel may receive basic course credit for their prior service. College freshmen and sophomores, or other students with at least two years remaining in college, may gain credit for basic military science courses by completing a four-week ROTC leadership practicum at Fort Knox, Kentucky, conducted during the summer. Once the student receives basic course credit, he/she enrolls in the advanced course (see advanced course, above, in Four-Year Program) to complete the requirements of the program.
